Meet the Contributors: Lidia S. Martinez, Southwest Airlines

With the release of the Heart of a Woman in Business a full three weeks early, contributors to the book are thrilled to receive copies earlier than planned.

Pictured here is Lidia S. Martinez, Manager of Corporate Community Affairs for Southwest Airlines.

Her lighthearted clip appears in the  "Committing to Excellence" chapter of the book:

Going Nuts!
Find a purpose you are crazy about and go nuts! Southwest Airlines Employees are often accused of being nuts – when in fact all we are is celebrating life. We celebrate each other. We celebrate our Customers. And we celebrate being different!

In addition to celebrating her 18th year loving working for Southwest Airlines, Lidia is a devoted wife to Ted and loving mother of two, a sweetheart of a charitable lady, Chair of the National Board of Directors for MANA-a National Latina Organization, and September 17 received the “Hispanic Heritage Month Local Heroes” Award for Business from KPBS (public television) and Union Bank of California. In her desire to empower future leaders, she supports Girl Scouts, Hispanas Organized for Political Equality (HOPE), and the Heart of Los Angeles Youth (HOLA). The program airs on September 30 at 10:00pm Pacific on KPBS.
